overdue + unfinished = fabulous
When people describe a book they are passionate about, they'll always say, "I couldn't put it down!" However, I have come to the conclusion that
if a home decor book or magazine is truly great, you will put it down so that you can try things immediately!
I am always reserving stacks of decor and craft books from the library and just realized that the really great ones get returned without ever being finished for the reason mentioned above. This is the case with the currently overdue thriftychic. Each time I pick it up and begin to leaf through, inspiration hits, the book gets put down and I begin to rummage and rearrange!
Great ideas such as a trellis-turned-organizer. Cheap and charming!
Draped and clipped muslin as a curtain. Perfect for us no-sew types.
Fairy lights to add a warm glow.
Painted stairs (top) which I am considering for my own home for the grungy carpet replacement project that keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the list.
A bench with pillows beneath a window. So beachy!
And again, this GASP-inducing image that prompted me to finally decide to go for it and order my first meter of ...
Cath Kidston fabric to be used in the kitchen/dining area someway, somehow.
And on the top of tomorrow's to-do list: return this overdue, unfinished and fabulous book to the library. (I'd renew it but it's already on-hold)
